It’s that time of year again! Time when football starts taking over the minds and conversations of the workplace, school and home. Adults and children alike start dressing in their favorite team colors and sportswear, especially anywhere close to game day. Cars are adorned with flags and window stickers.

Playful banter takes over between those who root for opposing teams. I love football season. It is a great reason to invite friends and family over, watch the game, and have amazing food. It’s even better when you get to go to a game. The air is electric with excitement and anticipation. There is really nothing else like it.

The food that is associated with football or what is referred to as tailgating, is often high in fat. I want to give you an option that is not only low in fat but is also bursting in flavor. Guaranteed, even meat loving men will be going back for seconds and thirds when they try these Sweet and Spicy Veggie Wings. In fact, if you are having a crowd over, it might be a good idea to prepare in advance and double it.

Traditional wings are made with chicken, however I would venture to guess that no one will miss the meat in this recipe. The other ingredient that is a bit different is Silk Almondmilk. I have actually been using Silk in my morning Chai Tea Latte and loving it! I honestly can not tell the difference, in fact, I like the Silk better. It’s a creamy consistency, which is perfect in my Latte.

The sauce is a combination of sweet and spicy, with a little heat from red pepper flakes and Sriracha hot sauce. The recipe doesn’t call for a lot, but you can always add more if you like more heat.

The cauliflower is coated with flour, seasonings and Silk Almondmilk. Then baked, not fried, to make it healthier.

This simple head of cauliflower is transformed into a spicy/sweet Thai dish that will make everyone’s head spin. It is just that good.
